Squillace is a design-driven and client-focused architectural practice based in Sydney. Since 1995, we have produced spaces that are innovative, beautiful, and timeless. Our collaborative approach ensures that each building is efficient, inspiring and enhances the community.
We are mindful of our responsibility to advocate for sustainability throughout all our work while solving complex problems and understanding commercial realities. Through our adaptive reuse projects, we have been able to revitalise existing buildings into new spaces that make the most of our built environment.
With decades of experience in single dwellings, multi-residential, hospitality, and commercial projects, we create places of meaning.
Carbon Neutral Certification
Squillace achieved carbon neutral certification on 30/12/2020. To achieve this status and become carbon neutral Squillace undertook the following process:

What Carbon Credit Projects does Squillace purchase offsets from?
Mauritius Solar Carbon Offset Project
Solar energy plays a significant role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions as well as the emission of harmful air pollutants such as sulphur and nitrous oxides. The success of the project will continue to help in promoting renewable energy use for a cleaner future while diversifying Mauritius’s current energy mix. Each solar panel consists of many photovoltaic cells containing silicon and conductors which convert photons from sunlight into direct current electricity. This electricity flows to an inverter
